Winmail.dat problem!

By Virgoan ·
Hi,
Had a great headache with winmail.dat attachment currently! See, send out doc attachments to customer and reply myself also but no attachment (according to customer) but attached with winmail.dat (mine email)...

Any idea to solve this? Via user MS outlook? Or some setting must be set at email server (using Deerfield Mdaemon email server)?

What is MIME and Uuencode?

Please help, many thanks.

Windmail.dat contains all the Rich Text Formatting commands used by Outlook. You can alleviate this problem by sending to that recipient in HTML format, or plain text format. This article explains each format and tells you how to always send to certain users in Plain Text.

Any spaces that may appear in the link should be eliminated.

MIME is an extension to SMTP that tells e-mail clients about the components of the e-mail. For example: .jpg is a picture; .doc is a document. The MIME information allows the client to know how to handle the other components. The client you're sending to can't read the MIME type of the Outlook formatting, so it doesn't know what to do with it.Unicode is a enhanced version of ASCII. Unicode is a 16-bit system that allows for the use of every symbol of every language, with some left over.

Hope that helps.
